Are you kidding me? Obviously I'm using a wifi dongleghans wrote:Can't the iPhone act as hotspot ? Add a WiFi dongle to the Pi
and you're good to go.
iwconfig only works with WEP, for WPA you need to use wpa_supplicant.Wolfram23 wrote:sudo iwconfig wlan0 essid "hotspotname" key s:"wpa2key"

I saw a command on here somewhere that would list all the features of your wifi dongle's chipset, but I can not remember what the command was.
Anyway, it was news to me when I read it that the dongle hardware itself has to support AP mode, but I guess it makes sense.
Code: Select all
I am interested in your work truehl. I plan to use a RPi with a wifi adapter to connect to as an access point with my iPhone or iPad. I would then like to send a webpage with drop downs for settings. When a change is made the RPi will send the proper new setting to a device it is connected to. Then I will be able to make changes remotely.truehl wrote:I've successfully set up a scenario you need, i think! I've installed an access point on RPi, this is seen by my iPad, I can connect, I get an IP from RPi and I can communicate in a local WLAN served by RPi. I can also connect more of my devices e.g. an iPod. I use this to build a WLAN for my multi room music system. I can also use the RPi as a player, as well as my Apple devices. That's very cool. To make it absolutely mobile I ordered a power bank, I've not yet tested. If you also connect eth0 to your LAN, the Pi acts as a router and you can have Internet access.
If you are interessted in this, I can give you more details. I'll also include this feature in SqueezePlug the next days.
